Thank You URI Hempfest And Sonic Titan

shaun anzalone This was a hard act to follow. I should know. . . I had to follow it.  First, big thanks to Chris and Patrick et al. from the URI chapter of Students for Sensible Drug Policy, and dj/producer Reza Clifton and the team over at WRIU for taking such great care of us yesterday. I was one of the two speakers from Law Enforcement Against Prohibition (LEAP) and it appeared that the day’s events were in capable hands.

After the radio interview we headed for the stage where we would speak to the crowd and found Shaun Anzalone (seen here), Steve McCaul, and Tom Symes — aka Sonic Titan — covering Sabbath and just killing it! They ended their performance (which included some real swell original material) with an insane extended Led Zeppelin set. This guy totally shreds — they all do. (Can drummers shred? That doesn’t sound right.) I had not expected to be following a face-melting power trio with my little speech, but I found it a most welcome distraction. Nothing like a little metal to steady the nerves. These guys are from Massachusetts and seem to be keeping pretty busy. Somebody get them to Providence. Go listen to Sonic Titan at Facebook. More pix after the jump.
